Zhou Guanyu, the first full-time Chinese racer in Formula 1, had a successful rookie season, earning points on his first outing and finishing in the top 10 twice more.

Zhou claims that despite the fair share of poor reliability that caused missed track time and unpredictable results, he was still able to identify the key areas that need improvement throughout his debut season with the squad.

Zhou told the reporters, including RacingNews365.com, “At the beginning of the year I was improving one-lap pace to get the confidence to be pushing on the limit and not making any mistakes in qualifying.”

“The way I was able to reach that throughout the season, the summer break was a switching point to improve my qualifying pace.”

At the Canadian and British Grands Prix in 2022, Zhou qualified for the third round on two different occasions. He finished eighth in the first race’s points.

At Silverstone, he achieved his highest qualifying position of tenth, but this was only good for a few laps as he was injured in a terrible collision just meters into the race.

Zhou aims to maintain consistency

Given that he has already competed all over every circuit on the schedule with the exception of Las Vegas, Zhou claims he hopes to be more consistent in 2023.

“Hopefully I will be making a further step up and strive to be more consistent on my side, as there were many more new tracks for me to learn over the 22-race season,” he added.

“This season, most of the tracks I have already drove. So all this we can take into consideration and I feel like this year we can definitely make a further step up.

“But we are as a team very clear with the weaknesses and also the strong points.”
